Raglan bought back from Wyevale by previous owner


Wyevale Garden Centres has confirmed that Raglan Garden Centre has been sold to Coldbrook Ventures Ltd, who will continue to operate it as a garden centre.


Anthony Jones, Chief Operator Officer of WGC said: “We are pleased to have agreed the sale of Raglan Garden Centre to Coldbrook Ventures Ltd. Having previously owned Raglan garden centre, we wish Martin and his family all the best for their return to a centre they know so well. I would like to say special thanks to our great colleagues who I am sure will have a bright future under new ownership.”


Martin Davies, Managing Director of Coldbrook Ventures Ltd. the purchaser of Raglan (Garden Centre), said: "My wife and I view this purchase as a great opportunity to return to an industry, and a centre, that we both love and are looking forward to bringing our son, Alex, on board to eventually take the reins in the coming years. This is an exciting time for our family and an opportunity for old and new colleagues to share in our vision and family values. After a four year break it’s going to be a pleasurable and no doubt challenging journey, and we can’t wait to get stuck in."
